These pearls really are dyed, not painted as some are these days, and the hue is a tranpsarent silvery lilac-blue, not the baby blue shown in the photos, but this makes these pearls VERY versatile and can be matched nicely with a myriad of colors. They are individually knotted, well-matched and hang beautifully. Blemishes are minimal and the appearance is beautiful overall. Because the color is subtle, they are not gaudy, while offering a refreshing change from classic white pearls. Variety is the spice of life, especially when it comes to pearls! Overstock.com has THE best selection of pearls at the lowest prices. I will be buying many more pieces.

You won't have the "blues" wearing this lovely strand of pearls. Very pretty color,, generous length, and nice quality for the price. It will brighten up your outfits worn alone, or with other strands of pearls.. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because the strand is not hand knotted, but , it does fall very nicely on the neck. For the price this is an outstanding value, and a very attractive.

Beautiful blue-gray pearls with slight violet overtones. These were less blue than the online picture, but the more muted colors (blue with steel gray and overtones) make them look real. No dye rings, which can be common in dyed pearls, which all colored pearls are. Stunning look when worn as a choker and then with a long strand, together, which is possible with the long 48" length. Good value.

My husband bought this beautiful blue pearl necklace along with the blue pearl bracelet and blue pearl stud earrings for my birthday. All three items match perfectly in size and color (they match my eyes perfectly, too). These powder blue pearls are simply beautiful. The size and luster are stunning. What a great find for the cost. These pearls look much more expensive than what dear hubby paid. I love these power blue pearls. Thanks Overstock (and hubby, too) for a fantastic buy!
